Buddies and I went out for what we thought was an afternoon ride to the glacier and back. But good old metal creek claimed one of the quads. Made it all the way to the glacier, and then on the way back one of the guys tried crossing in a bad spot, and the water flipped the quad over. We had to go swimming just to hook him up and turn it over. I did end up winching him out, but as for his 2012 CanAm 800 is destroyed. 26 mile tow back to the truck, good thing he has insurance, because when it went upside down under the water it took most of his plastics. I learned a very good lesson today. 1 never ride in alaska with stock tires "the canam"! 2 never buy a Canam! 3 Leave jims creek alone.
